I can pay via Paypal and it would need to be shipped to Hutto TX 78634. Thank you!
Just went out and tested mine - I think the motor is in good shape, but could use some help (I'm new to testing electrical in cars). Worth noting that the spring that makes the mirror "snap" when mounted is either broken or unattached. I bet it would be easy to swap the parts though



When I cut the wiring harness, there are only four wires (didn't match what you shared, @MBL87560SEC - but thanks for checking. This is a 1984 euro, not sure if that matters):
- white
- green
- black
- brown

Usually, brown is ground (I think?). I got left to right working just fine by connecting green and white to a car battery I have. Video showing that left to right works just fine (might require QuickTime)

Only one other combination did anything- and that was brown and black. That makes a click sound- it's possible dirt or something else is jamming up and down. I can manually move the mirror up and down though, so that's weird. Here's a video of that:

If you're interested @HardwayMB , it's yours for $30 shipped (I can drop it into a flat rate box and ship it tomorrow- shoot me a DM)

(if anyone has tips on how I can re-test up and down, let me know and I'll try that again)
